    Raw Potato

    The Images series from Malts
    of Scotland never reveals the names of the
    distilleries, but with some good will and deduction one can get close. Take for
    instance this ‘Loch Indaal Lighthouse’ that has just hit the market. There are
    two distilleries at the Loch Indaal: Bowmore and Bruichladdich. But if you know
    your way around Islay, you will find that the lighthouse of Loch Indaal can be
    found in the village Port Charlotte, about a half hour south of Bruichladdich.
    Moreover, Bruichladdich produces a whisky with the name Port Charlotte. Need I
    say more?

    Raw patato, salted
    caramel and cow hide: that is the nose of this bottle in a nutshell. Underneath
    I find some sweet traits from apples, almonds and corn on the barbecue. Hint of
    coconut, smoked fish and even some breakfast bacon.

    On the palate, it is
    immediately bull’s eye: smoke, peat and salt. The sweetness, which tries it
    best to penetrate this, has quite a job trying to stay upright under this
    assault of peat. Liquorice, pepper, ginger. The apples and nuts are joined by
    banana and grapefruit. Sturdy fellow!

    The finish is long,
    intensely smoky and again quite sweet.

    Raw but magnificent
    Islay whisky. Yes, I do believe this is PC. Available for around 80 EUR.
